Groundnut is an important food legume in tropical, sub-tropical and temperate countries of the world. In India, groundnut is grown in an area of 5.53 million ha with a production and productivity of 9.67 million tons and 1750 kg/ha respectively. Groundnut quality is usually affected by storage practices and storage periods. In our present study, an experiment was carried out to study the nutritional changes that occur in groundnut during storage under the influence of Caryedon serratus and Aspergillus flavus. Results indicate the total unsaturated fatty acids, oil and protein contents were decreased and saturated fatty acids were increased. This could be due to interaction effect of insect and fungi in storage of groundnut pods in different storage bags at different moisture levels of 10 and 14%.

Keywords: Groundnut, Aspergillus flavus, Caryedon serratus, Fatty acid composition.
